First item in our daily blog during the Heritage Open Days Festival. WWII binoculars – what’s the Medway Queen connection?
A souvenir of Dunkirk. These binoculars were given to crewman Jack Skinner by a French officer when he was rescued from Dunkirk by HMS Medway Queen. Jack served throughout the operation and we’ll hear more from him later in the week.
This item, and most others in the series, feature in the various books published about Medway Queen's history.
